MODERN RANCH 



designed for 




COPYRIGHT 1951 BY NATIONAL PLAN SERVICE, INC. PRINTED IN U.S.A. 



L 




THE RANCH HOME today enjoys a popularity that is, 
perhaps, unparalleled in architectural history. The 
advantages of the one story plan from a design and 
convenience standpoint are many, and the benefits to be 
obtained through the wealth of sunlight and ventilation this 
architecture provides, have proved to be important 
factors in its popular acceptance. 

The typical ranch house features long, low, rambling 
lines, generous use of glass and practical planning for 
a maximum of efficiency and livability. 

It is a pleasure to present these homes for your 
consideration, with the knowledge that each of them has 
been designed to give you the utmost in dollar value and 
better living, whether in town or country. Many of them 
are especially suitable for building on lots that are ordinarily 
considered too small for a ranch type home. Others are, 
obviously, more adaptable to areas where space limitations 
present no problem. 

We will be happy to discuss your home building 
requirements with you and will consider it a privilege to 
make suggestions that we feel qualified to offer through 
years of experience in home building.

THE use of stone in combination with hori- 
zontal frame siding lends charm and dignity 
to the exterior of this home. The large living 
room and dining area, typical ranch style, opens 
onto a large porch at the rear that may be 
screened or glazed for an outdoor summer living 
room. The "L" shaped kitchen has a small snack 
space.

THIS five room home actually has the 
efficiency of six. Note the large snack 
space facing the rear garden and the con- 
venient all-purpose room which affords un- 
limited use as a den, child's playroom, or 
a guest room. When and if you decide to 
add the large future porch indicated in the 
plan, it will he accessihle through the 
French door leading from this room. The 
use of some brick at the front, together 
with the wrought iron trellis, makes this a 
most interesting exterior.

THE use of modern style windows and the addition of 
a large breezeway and garage make this design an 
outstanding ranch home, although it also has many 
modern Colonial characteristics. Meals are easy to pre- 
pare and serve, both in the snack space provided in the 
"U" shape kitchen, and the adjacent dining area. A 
central hall provides ready access to bedrooms or bath 
from the kitchen without passing through the living

many Colonial characteristics. The kitchen has a 
dining space but, in addition and adjacent to it, there 
is a den or dining room which may also be used as an

■*■ has wood shingles on the exterior walls and 
a wide stone chimney and flower hox. Tele- 
vision has been given every consideration in 
the planning and through the use of a ro-

angles in the living room and dining room 
and also from the glass panel above the snack 
space in the kitchen. The front bedroom is 
provided with a sliding panel so that the set 
may be seen through it, as well.

INDIVIDUALITY is expressed through 
the unusual picture and corner win- 
dow arrangement, the large front entry 
porch and open porch at the side. The 
exterior is of beveled siding with vertical 
siding employed at the front for contrast. 
The movable cabinet shown between din- 
ing room and living room can be readily 
shifted to make various room arrange- 
ments possible. The compact "L" shape

The hours that are spent in the kitchen are what 

yon make them. That is why too much care cannot he 

given to its arrangement and decoration ... to save 

steps and he as pleasant, comfortahle and enjoyable as 

it is possible to make it. Personal tastes should he your 

guide when selecting colors, curtains and decorative 

schemes. The kitchen is distinctively yours. It reflects 

your own personality. Make it a room you are happy 

to he in, and proud to show your guests. 

There are many ways of planning kitchen arrangements, 

hut some major principles should he followed to 

save time and effort and allow greatest convenience — 

r 

(1) Include counter tops or working space beside 
the sink, the range and the refrigerator. 

(2) Place the sink so that it is convenient to the 
range and refrigerator. 

(3) Include a food-mixing center, beside the re- 
frigerator preferably, or beside a range. 

Store foods and equipment nearest the place where 
they are used — within arm's reach whenever possible. 

Be sure to provide adequate storage space for 

needed equipment near the point of use. Cabinets in 

modern kitchens actually provide more storage 

space than the old-fashioned pantry.

brick home has only four rooms, a large 
dining area in the kitchen gives it five room 
efficiency. The attached garage with access 
opposite the front door provides all-weather 
shelter in entering the home. Note the large 
living room with hay window and fireplace.

THE wrought iron trellis and stonework introduced 
into the exterior of this home give it a note of dis- 
tinction, further carried out hy the corner windows 
and attractive wood shingles on the side walls. The 
two large bedrooms accommodate twin beds and 
there is a very convenient all-purpose room looking 
out upon a terrace through windows and French 
doors. This may be used as a playroom, sick room, 
guest bedroom, or a den. There is also a snack space 
in the kitchen for intimate family meals.

INGENIOUS planning has created a feeling of spacious- 
ness in this large living room and adjacent dining area. 
The fireplace and chimney provide an entry and yet do 
not detract from this spaciousness. The unusually wide 
stone chimney and flower hox accentuate the charm of the 
picture window unit. Each bedroom has large wardrobe 
closets and there is a convenient huilt-in vanity in the 
bathroom.

THE snack space in the kitchen gives this home the efficiency of an 
extra room. The illustration shows a four room home complete in 
every respect and plans are available with or without basement, If, at 
the time of construction, or at a later date, you wish to add the third 
bedroom it can easily be done, making the home even more architec- 
turally attractive. Three elevations are available for this same basic 
floor plan, giving you a wide choice of design with the same efficiency 
in layout. On the opposite page, one elevation shows an unusually 
pleasing design achieved by using open trellis work and the other 
through the introduction of stone at the front.

HPHIS small home has many outstanding 
features. The large stone corner fire- 
place in the living room and the ample pic- 
ture window area overlooking the terrace 
and stone flower hox will appeal to those 
who wish to create an "outdoor living" 
effect inside the house. The one car garage 
is very interesting and helps accentuate the 
width and spaciousness. It may be omitted, 
however, if the lot size is not large enough 
to accommodate it, without detracting from 
the home's appearance. This plan will go 
well on a corner, or it may he turned the 
narrow way if your lot width is small.

r |\HE most interesting and pleasing exte- 
■*■ rior of this five room one story home is 
achieved through the blending of wide wood 
shingles, siding and stone. The continuous 
roof line accentuates the wide spreading ap- 
pearance and provides a roof for the large 
front porch as well as the garage. In addition 
to the dining room there is a snack space in 
the kitchen. The plan lends itself well to a 
corner lot.

ACCURATE BLUEPRINTS 

for 
MODERN RANCH HOMES 




A home must first be "constructed" on 
paper with every detail clearly defined, 
if the home builder would be assured of 
complete understanding and agreement 
among all concerned with the building of 
his home. 

In the interests of sound and better small 
home construction, each design in this 
book was engineered by architects and 
technicians experienced in specialized 
fields of home planning. 

All blueprint working drawings include 
the following: basement or foundation 
plan, floor plans, front, rear, and side 
elevations, complete framing plans, wall 
sections and all necessary details. 

REVERSED PLANS 

Perhaps your home should face the 
opposite direction. Obviously, a plan 
designed for a lot facing east will not result 
in the best exposure when your lot fronts 
to the west. Plans of homes as illustrated 
in this book are available either as shown 
or reversed, as may be required.
